Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCU)


Established before the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCU’s) were institutions of higher education intended to primarily serve the African-American community. Most were founded after the Civil War and were situated in the southern states. Prior to the Civil Rights Act and during the segregation period,  higher colleges and universities were overwhelmingly white and black enrollment was disqualified or limited.
